Does anyone know how many words a good modern studies answer should be? Mine are usually about 300, but I find it hard to do that much in the time without my hand falling off.

I could never do 600 words in the time. Was that a timed essay?

I usually aim for about one and a half pages too but for me thats 300 words or just above cos ma writins quite big.

Not is wasn't timed! But i do have a spectacular talent for writing books in exams, i always write more than is necessary! But yeah and A$ page in a half is mostly wot i did!
Does anyone else find the stupid big lines in the SQA answer booklet annoying cause u can never judge how much you have written!

We are told to write between a page and a page and a half (A4) by our teachers. Keep in mind you only have between 17 and 20 minutes to write an answer (will if you split it up exactly it is 17 minutes per question)
